About Reader's Almanac

From the Writing Center at NYU, this radio series is dedicated to "good reading."

Blending biographical information, critical readings, book recommendations and author readings, this program (1941-51) is hosted by Warren Bower, director of NYU's Writing Center and literary critic of The Saturday Review.  Discussions about genre and craft are honest, freewheeling, and elevated.  These programs are indicative of the seriousness New Yorkers share for literary and popular literature.

From 1970-1985, Walter James Miller hosted the program.  Miller conducted early interviews with writers such as Nadine Gordimer, Erica Jong, Kurt Vonnegut, Dorothy Gallagher and Jerzy Kosinski. He was associated with the NYU Programs in Liberal Studies.
